I Want to Dress Up for Halloween!!!!

October 1, 2010

I so want to dress up this Halloween! But I'm just not up for throwing a party and I don't know of anyone planning one either.

In the past I've done girly, cutesy, costumes, but nothing really dark. I've had this bee in my bonnet for years now with no opportunity to bring it to fruition and I've just been itching to get all dressed up to show it off.

That being the 'Gabriel' character in Constantine. I loved her/his costume in the last scene. The hospital bracelets on her arms were a nice touch. So I want to sew something almost identical to this with an 'Angel of Death' theme, the bracelets representing the souls she reaped. 
Oh and the final touch would be these fx eyes. Now if only I could pony up the $700 for a pair. But these would a nice albeit still impractical alternative. 

It would be ambitious. I think I'd need to enter some kind of contest to feel like I made it worth my time.

Do any of you have an itching for some kind of Halloween ball?

I'm going to a friend's party as a My little Pony. Color sweat pants, matching colored tee, two wigs in a coordinating color (one for the tail, one for my head), and headband with felt pony ears, and a drawing that represents my pony on my right buttcheek. I thought it would be cute with pregnant belly poking out since ponies seem to have that naturally protruding belly going on. Your costume sounds bad-a though. totally awesome!

That would be very dark indeed! Hope you have a chance to make this - it would be sure to win some contests!

You don't know how long I have been wanting to craft a giant pair of pose-able wings, much like the CGI ones in Constantine, only white. I have been working on infrastructure off and on for several years. I have all the feathers, even. I don't even know what I'd do with them, except put them on a wall after some pictures.

I have a costume party to attend 13 days before I have a daughter. My first pregnancy I glued about 800 1/2" mirror tiles to my belly and went as a disco ball. Topping that is daunting, but I have a few ideas involving some creepy doll face and hands and lots of fake skin and makeup. We shall see!

I wanted to organize a party with a theme: Batman! More Tim Burton than Joel Schumacher... But we didn't start the process early enough! Now I still want to dress up, but none is doing anything interesting around here...

I want to dress up too, but I don't think I'm up for throwing a party.

Ever browsed the costumes for Dragon*Con? Or any of the other sci-fi, fantasy, anime conventions? There's plenty in driving distance of you. You don't have to just wait for Halloween!

Lucky me, I have a six-year-old to coordinate with. This year, after three mind changes, she wants to be Glinda. I'm going to be the tornado - lots of streamer on my clothes, crazy hair, a house hat set askance on my brow...Weee!
